DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney has a “very strong view” that a trade deal can be secured between Britain and the European Union, Ireland’s Sunday Independent newspaper quoted him as saying.

“We are more likely to get a deal than not because I think it’s in everybody’s interest,” the newspaper quoted Coveney as saying on Saturday evening.
